December Program: Painterly Clay

There are many uses for scrap clay. Carol Roberts will show you a way to dress up your clay and  give it a painterly effect.


Basic clay kit plus the following:

  • Scrap clay- choose colors you like and start blending them in the pasta machine. When you get a spot you like, take a cutter and cut a piece or two. Continue doing that until either your clay is completely blended or you don’t like the colors any more. See before photos for some examples of what I chose. 
  • Pan Pastels are preferred, chalk pastels will work too.
  • Small paintbrush
  • Isopropyl alcohol 
  • Paper towels
  • Varnish, if using chalk pastels 
  • Clay blade and/or Exacto knife
    Backing clay
